Is it true, that her English is the best one? I hear it once and It was not that cool!
I don't think Her Maj is trying to be cool, gabrigabri.
I meant that her accent is weird, I don't like her pronounce! But I'm just an Italian boy who speaks a little bit of English! But my criteria/canons (??)are Birtney Spears and Desperate Housewives!
This explains a lot. Britney Spears and Desperate Housewives are American and so speak with an American Accent, rather different from any English accent! The Queen speaks with a traditional upper-class aristocrat's english accent. Don't worry - not very many people have such a "posh" accent as that nowadays...
I think she sounds very distinguished. Have you seen the movie?
Well..It's like saying that Luca Cordero di Montezemolo (just an example of an Italian man who speaks well) has a weird Italian accent and you do prefer the way Francesco Totti speaks Italian
This reminds me of the story about a man who was very exasperated by his son's poor use of language.
"Don't you know the Queen's English?"
"Yeah, I heard she was."
Yes I have. I think it was done really well and although I expected it to be boring it was really interesting and even funny!
And I don't think her English is strange or anything, I was merely saying that it is unusual for anyone of the general public to have a similar accent.
